12 Week Training Program - Port to Port MTB
Train Smart = Maximum Froth:

Why should I upgrade to the Bronze Plan?
There is a huge amount of difference between the included in the entry plan and the $79-dollar upgrade plan. Head coach of FTP Training Mark “Fenz” Fenner wrote all the plans for the Port to Port, but, specifically tailored the workouts in the Bronze level plan for the actual specific demands of the event. Fenz wrote the upgraded Bronze plan to allow for different time availability’s of either 6, 9 or 12 hours.
Each Bronze plan comes with media/video content specific to the Port to Port that was filmed with many of the FTP Training coached riders and Port to Port winners, like Peta Mullens, Mark Tupalski and Chris Hamilton. Each week’s media covers a huge amount of training related information like strength and conditioning, stretching, nutrition, MTB skills, race tactics, mental skills, bike set up all specific to the Port to Port. Fenz who has also raced the Port to Port covers course analysis and pacing strategies for each stage.
As well as all this you are also able to login to the monthly webinars with an FTP Training coach to cover more training related information to help you be the best you can come race day and answer questions and provide any help they can.
What is the difference between the Silver and the Bronze Plan?
The silver level upgrade has all the added value of the Bronze plan, but, takes things to the next level in terms of the way in which the program is delivered (Today’s Plan online training platform) The Silver plan option comes with personalised interactions with a FTP Training coach. If you’re really looking to step up and understand more about what your capable of as a rider, get to the bottom of what the numbers mean in terms of power or heart rate, then this is the right choice for you.
